Well I'm taking my CCNA prep class. I know a lot of people (myself included) used to think that certifications were kind of a joke and that real world experience counts even more. But with the job market the way it is for me (Automotive, US) you have to have something that helps sets you apart from the other thousands of resumes.

I enjoy Linux, I enjoy learning and I hope that Linux will one day get to the point where Microsoft is now. I slowly see that happening as I've just deployed...

Installing Slackware and the "Not There File System" (NTFS)

Posted 04-04-2006 at 03:02 AM by Yethic

As I stated in the last blog entry, I downloaded slackware and burnt it to disk.

It is about this time that I should point out that my harddrive was a NTFS partition
i.e. Not resizeable by linux (or even readable unless you have the kernel modules installed)

I had much important data on my harddrive and had already burnt 700+ CD's worth off.But I wanted dual boot so I spent another week getting what seemed like some reliable programs to re-partition my disk before...

Linux Green Horn!

Posted 04-03-2006 at 05:23 AM by bongski55

Well, I want a different name for the common "newbie" and for want of a better one I chose "green horn".
I started linux just by curiosity when Mandrake 7.2(I can't be sure of the version-it's been quite a while since!) was included in a UK based pc magazine accompanying CD. It was a limited version of the distro since I learned later on that Mndrake usually comes in 3 CDs. So without knowing anything about linux I just installed what I had. Luckilly...
